Let me be the first to not give this beer 5 stars. I guess it might be because I taste this beer with my tastebuds and not my heart, but Grain Belt is sub-average in the taste department at best. Although I agree that it is a good beer for binge drinking, I see little value to it other than that it is always the cheapest beer available at the State Fair. I do, however, prefer a Grain Belt any time the other choices are Bud, Bud Light, Mich Golden, Miller Lite, and Coors Light, which is often the case at bars back in my little hometown. Not being a hater here, just my opinion.
I used to be a typical Bud/Busch/Michelob guy. Whatever's cold, right?! (I grew up in a town of 690) However, around my final year of college, I developed tastebuds and soon began to whistle a different tune. My fridge now usually contains about 5-7 different beers at any given time, and I'll be dipped in dog doo if you can find a domestic light beer in there. My tastes are more inclined to the dark side, with Stouts and Black Lagers being my favorites, generally speaking, though I have developed a love for IPAs as well. View all posts by Joe Lunchpail
